Migrants carrying suitcases and bundles of possessions began queueing up in the early morning darkness at the official meeting points for transportation to reception centres across France.
The major three-day operation will clear the sprawling shanty town near the Calais port – a symbol of Europe’s failure to resolve its migrant crisis – of its estimated 12,000 occupants
